Hemingway: Republican Leadership's Inability To Create A Red Wave An Indictment On How They're Running Things

Editor-In-Chief at 'The Federalist' Mollie Hemingway spoke with FOX News' Laura Ingraham on the leadership failure for the Republicans in the 2022 Midterms. <blockquote>HEMINGWAY: We really did see given all of the enthusiasm in the country that Republican leadership really failed Republican voters. Republican voters were excited. The -- the ground was very fertile for a big Republican victory. Joe Biden's approval was in the toilet. 75% of the country thinks we're going in the wrong direction. Just objectively speaking, things are bad in the country, whether it's the southern border or crime or foreign policy, inflation. And that Republican leaders could not turn that into a big victory for Republicans is really an indictment for how they're running things. I could not agree more with your opening where you talk about the importance of understanding that elections are not run anymore like they were in the 1980s. There is now extensive period of voting where people who are smart are running get out the vote operations every day, hauling in ballots every day. Republicans keep on thinking that election day is a single day and they think if they get everybody excited for that last day that that will be sufficient. That's not sufficient. There needs to be an effective ground game that is on Republican leadership and there's only so much that everybody else can do with their enthusiasm and everything else.</blockquote>
